Not sure what to think with JFH.

Remember when he joined Burton they were riding the crest of the wave and he had the same players who did excellently for Gary Rowett - who ended up going to Birmingham.

We've seen from our Conference triumph what sort of momentum a promotion can give a club, which worked for Burton in League One. During the season, he got a move to QPR and was found out.

I'd question some of the signings at QPR with a number of them purchased from foreign clubs who either weren't good enough or didn't know the league. It's no surprise that when he left, Ian Holloway brought in players with proven Championship experience such as Matt Smith, Luke Freeman and Kazenga Lua-Lua.

The position of Director of Football and Recruitment would almost certainly command a salary in the region of 500k.

At Chelsea... but at Bournemouth you need to divide that figure by a factor of ten. Their total wage bill for 2016-17 was 34m. The equivalent figure for Man City is 225m.


It was 59.6m in 2015-2016 and I doubt it has halved this season.

I would be gobsmacked if JY was on anything remotely close to 500K.

I'd be ecstatic with JFH considering the other 'favourites' for the job. He may have inherited a good lot from Rowett but had them for a couple of years, got them playing excellent football that didn't overreach in terms of trying to be too flash. They had a good mix of good play and pragmatism. If anything I'd say Clough has benefited from the good work of JFH.

I don't think it counts as being 'found out' by not doing so well at QPR. That club is just a mess. Besides, not doing well at QPR and managing Crawley are like two different worlds. The current favourite for the job was an unmitigated disaster at Chesterfield, and didn't actually do that well here in the end (his record was no better than Gregory's I seem to remember).

On the other hand, I'd be astonished if JFH was willing to come here. It'd be a big step down from Burton let alone QPR.

I'm not sure about that, he went to Burton for a salary of 40k (famously less than his weekly wage as a top-flight player) because he wanted the challenge... and commuted from Surrey... I think if he had assurances about the right level of backing, that he might just fancy it...(?)

Exactly. Managers don't like to be out of work for too long before getting back on the bike. If he thinks he can do a job why not....a stepping stone to something else.

what we do know or at least have a very good idea of is that JFH isn't in it for the money, he has a strong fighting spirit and will happily kick the players up the a*** when needed.

couple him with Danny Bulman or Michel Kuipers and i think you have a strong intelligent duo that will push not only each other on but the team as well

i would worry as much about JFH's QPR stint as I would from Steve Evans stint at Leeds so rest assured i'll sleep like a baby

If memory serves me correctly, didn't Mr Eren only say last week he wanted someone local who knew the club and town ?

Isn't Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink from the Netherlands ?

Season ticket prices announced this week. Seems a bit later than usual, wonder if it's going to be timed to coincide with the new manager announcement.

He does originate from The Netherlands and I do believe he once landed at Gatwick and came to County Mall to spend some money in Burger King Embarassed

Please don't even begin to joke, Ian. I never wish to see that fraud anywhere near this club again!

I see Paul Ince & Brian McDermott are amongst the named mentioned in the article below.

http://www.crawleyobserver.co......-1-7951272

Don't think the latter has been in management since his departure from Leeds when that Italian guy took the club over. Would McDermott be a popular choice I wonder?

He is indeed but doesn't live far away.
A very good friend of mine was heavily involved with some major building works he had done at his place a few years back.He said Jimmy was a top,top bloke.
Doesn't mean he's gonna manage us though!! Laughing

The fly in the ointment with JFH is whether he would be a serious candidate for the vacancy at ex-club Middlesbrough - in the championship next season.
